A commission build complete earlier this year. Not a bad kit, but at 1:32 it is really lacking in detail in the cockpit...very basic indeed! The pilot figure was added from aftermarket. I had to reshape the carburettor intake as the kit offering[...]
I just finished this one on Saturday night.
It's the 1/48 Tamiya P-51D Mustang with Lifelike Decals, Eduard fabric seat belt and Barracuda oval tread wheels. Built as 44-151103 flown by Col. Dick Rowland, CO 348 FG Luzon, Phillipines, early 194[...]
My most recent addition to the Nose Art Group build is Tamiya's really nice but old P-51D, "Passion Wagon". This A/C was flown by Lt Arvil Roberson assigned to the 362nd Fighter Squadron, 357th Fighter Group. They were the first 8th Air Force un[...]

This is a model of an airplane that I have wanted to build for a very long time and [...]
This is Revells 1994 boxing of Monograms 1/72 N A F-82G. The G was an all weather model used with some success in the early days of the Korean war. The first aerial victories are attributed to the F-82, it also was used for ground attack mission[...]
